So I feel a bit bummed out this week because I've slipped in my resolution to keep posting on the site. No excuse really other than being very grumpy about the students at work being unable to voluntarily shut up for more than a nanosecond. I have noticed that I've bec...

So, here we have the next work in progress on my desk... or several desks really as I've been working on this at work today as I've had a very boring supervision job to do, and if I hadn't taken this in to do I would have gone bonkers very quickly indeed.

 Not the bes...

There are times, actually there are lots of times, when I'm working on a piece and I wonder, "What the fuck am I doing this for? It's utter crap."

This isn't the histrionics of a diva seeking reassurance that her performance is in fact simply marvellous, but honest do...

On the desk at the moment we have this:

I do love Kingfishers - they're among my favourite birds, and have that same compact shape that Hummingbirds do, so I guess there's a reason I like both. The other reason is of course the colour - to say that I love colour is some...

So, here we are at the start of a new year, and as I look out the window, the sun is shining, so I'll take that as a good omen of things to come.

Okay; so some experiments work and other don't - it's all part of the process, and instead of being bummed out (I'm a little bummed out), I should remember that I actually enjoy the experimenting, even the things that don't work out as they lead me towards things that...

I didn't even realise it at the time, But Battle of the Planets - a completely brilliant cartoon shown on BBC1 in the 70s and 80s - was Japanese of all things! Now, I can see it so clearly, the honking big eyes, the magical transformation sequence, the threat from an o...

There are times, dear reader, when I stop and pause mid-project and think,
"What the hell was I thinking?!"
It's happened quite a few times over the years, generally when I've bitten off a bit more than I can chew, or more likely just get a bit too into something for m...
